From tea to rosemary and even bacon, infused spirits are all the rage right now! Whether you are trying to modernize a classic or recreate a childhood favorite in drink form such as the peanut butter and jelly, infusing the flavor to the alcohol really does the trick.
The basics include combining various flavors into a base spirit. The most commonly used liquor is vodka because it has the least flavor, but recent trends show that gin, white rum, tequila blanca, and sake can also be used with almost any flavor. If you would like to try a stronger base, make sure the ingredients you use to infuse compliment the spirit. For example if you use bourbon, try bacon or chocolate. Brandy pairs well with fruit.You can even add flare to a classic like a Negroni or a Manhattan by infusing the Sweet Vermouth.
